It’s good to try new things, y’all.
I found the recipe for these simple, but scrumptious Pigskin Potatoes in a Rachael Ray cookbook over the weekend, and I just knew they would be good. The book is a classic Rachael Ray cookbook from 2006 titled The All-Occasion Cookbook and these Pig Skin Potatoes are included in a menu suggested for sports fans, hence the odd-sounding name.
I’ve roasted my share of potatoes through the years, but I’ve never seasoned them like this before.
In her recipe, she combines sliced potatoes with evoo (extra virgin olive oil), and seasons them with Montreal Steak Seasoning. It’s truly a super simple recipe, but the use of the Montreal Steak blend made these roasted potato wedges new for me.
We actually love the McCormick brand of this seasoning blend and we use it often to season meat, it’s so good for that! It’s a very peppery spice mix however, and before I found this recipe it’s doubtful I would have ever thought to use it to season potatoes.
I’m so glad to have made these simple, yet zippy potatoes as they were an instant hit with everyone in my house. The “test” batch was gobbled up in a jiffy, and then everyone proceeded to name a dish they thought would pair up well with them.
Burgers were mentioned specifically, as were baby back ribs and sloppy joes! All excellent suggestions, but I actually quite like them all on their own, and I can see them being part of an appetizer table with other hearty, warm foods like queso and chips, and pigs-in-a-blanket.
Thanks so much to my friend, Jolene, from the food blog Jolene’s Recipe Journal for inviting me to be a part of her National Cookbook Month recipe sharing event today!
